Happy New Year! As we step into the new year, what better way to kick off the sweet journey ahead than by crafting a delightful treat for Valentine's Day?

Learn how to transform a simple rose-themed cookie platter into a stunning centerpiece using royal icing. All the essential tools, including our new rose platter cookie cutter set and "Happy Valentine's Day" stencil, can be found in my shop. Let's dive into this step-by-step guide and create a sweet display that will delight your loved ones. Get ready to elevate your cookie decorating game and spread the love this Valentine's Day!

Rose Platter Cookie Cutters

This rose platter cookie cutter set includes a rose cookie cutter and a center circle cutter. You can purchase cookie cutters together as a set, or as a single cutter without the center circle.

(This is the same circle cutter used in all my platter sets, like this Snowflake set, Spiral Platter, and Floral Wreath, etc.)

There are two sizes available. When arranged as a platter, as shown in the example picture, the platter measures:

LARGE- 12 inches in diameter.

SMALL- 9 inches in diameter.

For this tutorial, I'll be decorating the large size.

Templates for the Rose Platter Cookie Cutter Set

To help with the decorating process, I made a PDF template available for this new rose cookie platter.

You can download these cookie templates HERE.

If you have a Kopykake or Pico projector, just print it out (or pull it up on your mobile device) and you are good to go. For those without a projector, follow the suggested steps below by tracing the design onto the cookie with an edible food marker.

The Cookie Decorating Process

To decorate these rose cookies, you will need the following suggested colors:

Step 1

Begin by first filling in the rose section with pink icing. Let that icing set for about 30 minutes.

Then fill in one half of the leaf sections with dark green icing. Let that icing set, as well.

Step 2

Next, fill in the remaining leaf halves with light green icing.

Then add the outline detail of the rose petals, as shown.

Step 3

For the center circle cookie, flood the entire cookie with white icing. Let this icing dry completely.

Then with stiff dark pink icing, scrap over a Happy Valentine's Day design with this "Happy Valentine's Day" cookie stencil.

Rose Cookie Platter Video Tutorial

The steps above are summarized in this time-lapsed video I put together below.

Here is the completed rose cookie platter all assembled. To create this entire platter required 11 cookies-- 10 rose cookies, and 1 center circle cookie.

This is the large, 12" version. For the tray it's on, I like to use the 12" pizza pans from Dollar Tree. They are cheap and sturdy for transporting around.
